One of the greatest challenges of the 21st century will be harnessing alternative energy sources in place of conventional fossil fuels. In this innovative and dynamic camp, girls will create a virtual partnership with a student in a developing country, using the engineering design process to design and 3-D print a solar-powered light source. During the week, the participants will apply scientific ideas to design, test and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another. Participants will be guided through the problem-solving process and offered a unique opportunity to brainstorm potential energy solutions with their global partner, based on changing energy needs in different parts of the world. At the end of the week, they will present their inventions and solutions to family and friends.
